Our Statement of Beliefs
Savage Grace Ministries Believes that there is one living & true God, eternally existing in three persons, the Father, the Son, & the Holy Spirit equal in power & glory; that this triune God created all, upholds all, & governs all. We Believe that the scriptures of the Old & New Testaments are the Word of God, fully inspired, without error in the original manuscripts, & the infallible rule of Faith and practice. We Believe in God the Fatheran infinite, personal Spirit, perfect in holiness, wisdom, power, & love; that He concerns Himself mercifully with the affairs of men; that He hears and answers prayer; that He saves from sin & death all who come to Him through Jesus Christ. We Believe in Jesus Christ, God's only begotten Son, conceived by the Holy Spirit. We believe in His virgin birth, sinless life, miracles, teachings, & His substitutional death, bodily resurrection, Ascension into Heaven, perpetual intercession for His people, & His visible return to the Earth. We Believe in the Holy Spirit, who came forth from the Father and Son to convict the world of sin, righteousness & judgment, & to regenerate, sanctify, & empower for ministry all who believe in Jesus Christ; we believe the Holy Spirit indwells every believer in Jesus Christ & that He is an abiding Helper, Teacher, & Guide. We Believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit & in the supernatural operation of all the biblical gifts of the Holy Spirit. We Believe that all men are sinners by nature & choice & that God regenerates by the Holy Spirit, those who repent of their sins & confess Jesus as Lord. We Believe in the Kingdom of God as the rule & reign of God in & through His subjects in both Heaven & in the Earth which is understood as an Outpost of Heaven. Gods Kingdom & it's establishment in the present culture was a major emphasis of the earthly ministry. We believe in the Church which is an expression of the Kingdom but not necessarily the exclusive expression. We believe the Church is the living spiritual body of Christ, of which all regenerated persons are members. We Believe in the personal, visible, return of Jesus Christ to the Earth & the full establishment of His Kingdom; in the resurrection of the body of regenerated believers who have preceded this event in physical death, the final Judgment & Eternal Blessing of the righteous & endless suffering of the wicked.
